We were there for three nights, nice hotel in nice location. Not convenient if you don’t have a car since it’s not by anything, but it has all facilities you might need. We stayed in one of the 7 jungle rooms “rustic style with private balconies looking at the tropical forest”, and that is exactly what it was, same as in the web pictures. What they didn’t explain is that beneath those rooms is where some of the staff have their own rooms, that is not a problem, I don’t care who is next, above or under... the problem is when people next to you lack consideration. On our last night, trying to rest after a long day and having ahead a considerable amount of traveling, I found myself not being able to sleep because of the loud chatting, loud laughing, loud joking. Really? Seriously? Hotel staff disturbing guests like that? I called reception and that did not take effect immediately, rather the noise finished when they went to bed 30 minutes after my call, what a joke. So wrong.

Not a lot to do in area other then waterfalls and beaches. Hotel has no beach access. Is basically a couples hotel. Only four chairs by pool so if you wanna chair you better go early. Rooms were small. No eating space. Hard to get ice. If you want water or soft drinks you better go to grocery store

I agree with the other reviews that use the term "mixed bag" to describe this hotel. My experience did not measure up to the price or the marketin. I stayed on Sat, Sun, & Mon nights in mid February. The hotel is beautiful but seems to be becoming run down. Water pressure was terrible in my room and hot water was variable. On the morning I had to check out early to get to the airport, they're was no water at all. The staff said they were trying to fix the problem and that there would be water in about 30 mins...too late for me though. My Angel Deluxe room was spacious, comfortable, and pool facing. It had a coffee maker, fridge, cooler for ice, and a safe. It was air conditioned and had two ceiling fans. The tile floor in my room was not dusted during my stay, something I noticed because I used the floor to lie down on and stretch. they're was no door song to hang for "Do not disturb". The infinity pool is beautiful and lovely to be in but there are only 6 pool chairs so there was often nowhere for me to sit. It is a small pool but that was not a problem during my stay. The restaurant is 100% gluten free and has a good variety of vegetarian options. I ate 3 breakfasts, 3 dinners, and one lunch there, and only about half of the food I ordered (veg and non-veg) was flavorful. The service was awkward and reluctant overall. Poolside service was non existent. Even after asking and being assured that a server would come out to take my order, I waited 20 minutes then went inside to find him. After being served, no other server ever came back to check on any of the guests by the pool. I had the same experience in the lounge, which is beside and open to the restaurant so guests can easily be seen by the service staff. But I was never once waited on the lounge. While checking out on the morning of the no-water situation, I overheard the desk staff taking a call from another guest about the water problem. After some back and forth, she eventually said they could provide some bottled water from the restaurant. But the guest had to come to the desk to get it. This is an example of the reluctant and indifferent service I experienced overall. There was only one person at the front desk at any time, and during my stay that person was always so busy answering calls and arranging tours and transportation for other guests that it took a long time to get their attention. The website and other marketing materials say that the hotel has a spa with hours of 10 am-5 pm, and I was looking forward to booking a massage. This is simply untrue. There is NO SPA. The front desk staff will call a masseuse from somewhere else to see if that person can come to the hotel, but I was never able to get an appointment, and the staff did not bother updating me on their efforts. I kept having to ask about it and then after 2 days I just gave up. The location is good, a short drive to 2 beaches including the Whale's Tail at Uvita beach, and many other beaches within 10 miles, as well as Ballena Marine National Park. Unless you walk on the shoulder of the main road, you will need a vehicle to go anywhere, including beaches. The hotel will call a taxi for you but there is no shuttle service. Wi-Fi service was decent and free throughout the hotel and rooms. The hotel does not provide any information about its grounds etc. I accidentally discovered a Jacuzzi tub, but that is not in the hotel info book that's in the room. Likewise, there is no map of the grounds or explanations about where paths and trails go, etc. The power flickered every night and went out during dinner one night, which is normal for C.R. The problem is that the back-up generator is extremely loud and right in front of the main door and open-air restaurant, and is in the same spot as the Jacuzzi tub. The noise made things unpleasant. The Jacuzzi pool is beautiful but not hot. Nearby Bahia Adveturas offers a wide range of excellent tours that the hotel will help guests to book.

The hotel was gorgeous tucked into the trees with a beautiful view of the ocean. The food in the restaurant was top notch every time. The service was above and beyond. I would recommend this hotel to anyone headed to dominical.
